Elizabeth – TLD industry representatives nationwide have identified industry-specific skills and knowledge required for entry to mid-level job opportunities in their businesses. In June, the TLD Talent Development Center at Union County College will launch a Supply Chain Management training program developed in response to these employer identified needs.

Employers with jobs to fill in transportation, logistics and distribution are invited to participate in an information and recruiting session at the Talent Development Center on Wednesday, June 8, 2016 at 9:30 am.  The TDC invites industry partner companies to use this session to identify persons of interest for open positions.  Participation includes giving a short presentation and conducting 10 minute interviews with training candidates. Approved job candidates will be invited into training classes in the TDC’s Supply Chain Management curriculum and will be available for hire upon completion of the training. Interested recruiters and hiring managers may R.S.V.P. to Nancy Burke at 908-527-7207 or burke@ucc.edu. For more information on the contents of this training, go to www.ucc.edu/community/LINCS.

Through this program, unemployed or displaced workers will train for positions in customer service, warehouse and transportation operations, logistics, manufacturing and service operations, demand planning, inventory management, procurement and supply chain management. Courses are 40 hours long and meet from Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for two weeks each. Training leads to certification by the Council for Supply Chain Management Professionals upon successful passing of the certification exam for each course.

The TDC has a state-wide reach and is in operation at the College’s Elizabeth campus, located at 40 West Jersey Street, and close to the hub of transportation in New Jersey.
